Am lame excuse-making dilettante, never mind me. Sigh.
On happier note, water is back to normal. It went from a TOUCH NOT THE WATER LEST YE DIE warning on the first day to a BOIL YOUR DRINKING WATER OR ELSE warning two days ago to a GEE I GUESS WE WERE BEING A BIT OVER-CAUTIOUS, NEVER MIND announcement last night. Whatever. I'm just glad it's over, and nobody got hurt/sick on account of the chemical spill (which turned out to be detergents and wax from a local car wash).
